Chicken Rotel

Perfection.  The only word necessary to describe this pasta recipe.  Make it NOW.

3-4 chicken breasts

3/4 stick of margarine
8 oz spaghetti noodles
1 can Rotel tomatoes, drained
1 tbsp Worcestershire
1 lb Velveeta


1.  Cook 3-4 chicken breasts in about 2.5 quarts of water.  Save 3 – 3 1/2 cups of the chicken broth for cooking the spaghetti.

3.  After removing the cooked chicken, cook the spaghetti in 3 cups of leftover chicken broth.

4.  Leave spaghetti in broth and add drained Rotel tomatoes and Worcestershire; cook until thickened.

  1. Made it and it is amazing!!! Realized half way through the day today I forgot the Worcestershire sauce but it was still super yummy!


    • The first two times we made this we purposefully forgot the Worcestershire sauce and still absolutely loved it! Glad you enjoyed it! By far one of my favorite recipes! 🙂


    • Leave it as you should only be using the 3 – 3 1/2 cups of water from the leftover broth from cooking the chicken to make the spaghetti. Does that answer the question? 🙂

  3. My family made this growing up. Only difference is I boil and debone a whole chicken which has a lot more flavor than just breasts and use real cheese. Thanks for reminding me of this recipe. Having a lunch with family and friends Sunday and this will be a perfect crowd pleaser.
